Why does boron trifluoride behave as a Lewis acid?
Write balanced equations for: BF3 + LiH →
What do you understand by Allotropy?
Consider the compounds, BCl3 and CCl4. How will they behave with water? Justify.
What do you understand by catenation?
Describe the shapes of BF3 and BH4–. Assign the hybridisation of boron in these species.
